This room use to function as our TOY ROOM. I like having a toy room only because it allows a space for your kids to destroy… and come bedtime, there are no distractions with toys all over the place. Also it was just helpful to have this space for when we hosted small groups or parties, so that the boys bedroom stayed clean and untouched. It just makes clean up a lot easier I find. A toy room obviously isnt a must in a home but if you can have one, its nice.
This room is now Caleb & Owen’s Bedroom. You can read THIS POST to catch up on why we split the boys up. Creating TWO bedrooms for our four boys, instead of ONE bedroom for all four.
This bedroom is smaller than Taite & Reed’s. It still functions well though and Caleb and Owen love it. The Bunks in this room could be bunked too, but like I mentioned in my other post, if I can help from having to make up a bunk bed, ill keep bunks unbunked. :)
With all my room post – below the photos I will try and list where I got things.
This room we did not repaint when we moved in. I would love to paint it but I dont mind the color… and so to save on cost, we just left it as is.
The Bunks we got from a friend back in Atlanta. I did their family portraits in exchange for the bed. I think? I forget honestly haha, but I am 99% sure we didn’t have to pay for them.
The Bedding I got many many many years ago from Aldi of all places. I believe each comforter was $10.00.
The space blanket on the end of Caleb’s bed I got when Caleb was 2 as a gift from a company called Skimbaco.
I made the fleece blanket on Owen’s bed.
The blanket on Caleb’s desk chair my mom made.
The red desk was gifted to us from a friend back in Atlanta as well.
The Tall Dresser was mine as a kid. So free :)
The shorter dresser we got from IKEA for $60?
The Red Curtains over the closet the former home owners at our Atlanta house left those in the basement. So those were also free – I love that we were able to take them with us when we moved… as they remind me of that Atlanta home a lot… good memories.
The Brown curtains (I need to hem them) I got years ago as well as a blog review for JCPenny. So no cost either.
The black shelves were there when we moved in.
The Red shelf was also gifted to us by the same lady who gave us the Red Desk.
The small end table beside Caleb’s bed I got thrifted back in Atlanta for $5!
and… I think thats about it. For the most part.
